Found this old photo of my Dad (brown sweatshirt) and his brothers in Fantasyland circa late 60's early 70's. Thought I'd share the nostalgia

I love how this photo shows how Fantasyland has changed. If you look to the back where the buckets are headed, that's the Fantasyland platform for the skyway. Casey Jr is to the right, and Dumbo was eventually moved from where it is in the pic to the right of the family. - Gia  802.0 #231 5:37PM
I keep trying to find that gate open so I can look up there in Fantasyland where the sky buckets used to come. That is the place they came to wasn't it? It is all covered with trees but you can see it, would make a great scary type Fantasyland attraction unless they ever brought those skybuckets back. - secretagentangel  4658.8 #28 8:32PM
Yes, that's it. You'd enter and exit from there. You can see a different view of it from Casey Jr if you ride backward in the caboose. - Gia  802.0 #231 8:52PM
That's so funny, that is where I always sit and always backwards, but usually at night, I will have to go during the day now!:) - secretagentangel  4658.8 #28 8:58PM
LOL! Nice. I remember wearing styles like that. - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 8:13AM
I cannot confirm or deny that I ever wore striped shirts like that back in the seventies - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 8:29AM
The White Rabbit looks surprisingly 'normal' for this time period. Thanks for sharing. - Linzee  1188.6 #146 8:15AM
Some of the characters were quite terrifying. - shaneofthedead  23.0 #6826 8:55AM
Haha I thought that too - cesium55  531.8 #390 9:59AM
I was born in the late 70's and was *terrified* of the fuzzy characters until I was about 10...this Rabbit does not make me feel justified with my childhood fear!! I need to find some pics of scary early years Mickey and Pooh bear. ::shiver:: - Linzee  1188.6 #146 10:07AM
Linzee you do not look like you were born in the late 70s!!! I thought you were closer to my age. - Armenda  1159.7 #152 8:21PM
lol, thanks Armenda, yeah nobody believes I'm in my 30's...I'm happy I still get carded!! - Linzee  1188.6 #146 8:38PM
is it dapper day already? lol - pikarich  5232.4 #23 8:23AM
Great pic! Check out all those trees in the background! Thanks for the pic! - DeaG  9.3 #11490 8:37AM
Cool- i see the skyway in the back. - ElSuperRaton  4469.4 #31 8:40AM
This is awesome. Thanks for posting - erinten  539.9 #382 9:07AM
I guess this would be considered a #throwbackthursday as well - shaneofthedead  23.0 #6826 9:40AM
Very cool! - Luvvdisney  384.3 #584 9:58AM
Your pops looks like a young Luis Miguel... - MRINFINITI  5.2 #18009 10:02AM
What good looking boys! Love dad's sweater and how the White Rabbit is holding your uncle's hand. Thanks for sharing :D - misschurro  6362.1 #17 10:06AM
My pants were striped like that back in the 70's - sr_citizen_space_ranger  70.0 #4162 10:17AM
The family resemblance is strong with those boys. - bluefairy  643.8 #313 5:12PM
I love this photo! - kueenofhearts  282.2 #1042 8:04PM
Such a neat pic! - DisLUVney  632.6 #320 8:07PM
That sweater looks hot. πŸ”₯ - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #148 8:10PM
Again thanking the dear lord that I was born in the late 80's so I got to miss all the browns, yellows, and oranges, and the terrible hair. Love your picture though! :) - BellesLibrary  411.9 #537 8:12PM
It's coming back. Look at the hipster kids. Hahaha - shaneofthedead  23.0 #6826 9:46PM
There is some awesome fashion from that time. Not all of it, but every decade has had some atrocious attire. - aidensmama  340.3 #704 9:48PM
